I would love to have this kind of information.
Problem is that community adopters of the projects very rarely talk about
who they work for and what they are doing. When I've asked for Eclipse's
help to determine who is downloading eRCP, this information was generally
thought to be private. So in that case, I think divulging any info that
has not been explicitly revealed by community members might not be a good

Please respond to
DSDP PMC list <dsdp-pmc@xxxxxxxxxxx>
|"DSDP PMC list" <dsdp-pmc@xxxxxxxxxxx>
|[dsdp-pmc] FW: Project success metric|
See below. Can I get a
list of commercial products / companies that use the technology from each
of the DSDP projects? This is probably good information to gather periodically
anyway, but in this case itâs for a study.
Thanks in advance,

Subject: Project success metric
I am wrting to you as a follow-up of a discussion with Bjorn Freeman.
I am a graduate student at Carleton
University, enrolled in the Technology Innovation Management program. My
thesis is on the topic of "Open source project diversity and success"
and will be based on data from Eclipse. My supervisor is prof. Stoyan Tanev
In my study I need to define project success and need to ask you one question.
Please answer it at your convenience.
- Do you know how many commercial parties have adopted the software developed
within the scope of the activities of your project, and if possible, can
you list them?
Your response will be critical for the finalization of my study as well
as for its potential value for Eclipse.
Thank you very much advance.
